Ah! A question!

One I can try to answer.

Surah 16 An-Nahl (The Bees)

16:8 وَالْخَيْلَ وَالْبِغَالَ وَالْحَمِيرَ لِتَرْكَبُوهَا وَزِينَةً وَيَخْلُقُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ
16:8 (God Creates cattle...) and horses and MULES and ASSes for you to ride and (for their) beauty and He Creates things you do not know (as yet)
Technology transfer or development is a double-edged sword, as evinced by Human History.

MULE Utility Vehicle
ASS_Aviation Support Ship
The above images were added in case you are limited in thinking 'mule'' and 'ass' only meant service animals. And that's what it means that the Quran (as a Knowledge Object) is to be applicable   في  كل  زمن  و مكان   'fi kul zaman wa makan', 'in/for every time/season and place/space.'

And just to put an end to all the speculation, I needn't have a Raison d'être to get up each morning  to do this; in fact, and God Knows, I would be much happier Not to Have to Wake up at all--He must have some motivation, other than anything to do with me, that this continues... 

Some reference to the possible motivation is openly stated in Sign 13:4--

Surah 13 Ar.Ra3d (Thunder)

وَفِي الأَرْضِ قِطَعٌ مُّتَجَاوِرَاتٌ وَجَنَّاتٌ مِّنْ أَعْنَابٍ
 وَزَرْعٌ وَنَخِيلٌ صِنْوَانٌ وَغَيْرُ صِنْوَانٍ
 يُسْقَى بِمَاء وَاحِدٍ وَنُفَضِّلُ بَعْضَهَا عَلَى بَعْضٍ فِي الأُكُلِ
 إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ (13:4) 

13:4 And in the Earth are Tracts Juxtaposed, and Gardens (Edens) of Lote Trees (3naab,  not 3nb~grapes) and crops and twinned date palms and other than twinned, watered by a singular source of water, and We Prefer (compete) the one with the other to eat (manage, run through, consume); Indeed, in this are Portents ( Signs such as the ones mentioned) for the Community of Thinkers (Learned, Reasonable People).

That is to say, that the Quran finds its True audience, among any given populace it is being expatiated to be  the most Well-Reasoned/Learned/Educated/Wisest of them; and, by turn, those who can Teach it most effectively. Apparently, because in the very act that the Quran is being expounded, there are obvious Signs to those among us that know better.

Surah 53  An.Najm 

وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَى (53:1
 (53:1 ) By the Star When It Sets (Revelation when Unfolded/Revealed)

Surah 74
بَلْ يُرِيدُ كُلُّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ أَن يُؤْتَى صُحُفًا مُّنَشَّرَةً(74:52) 
(74:52) Does Every Man (Human Being) Among them Desire that they should each be Handed  
(their very own) Publicized/Distributed Scripture?

Surah 81
(81:10) If (When) Scripture is Published (Expounded/Distributed/Broadcast Widely)

{See? I don't think everything has to do with Me, seeing as how only 1 Entity is reading this Blog (very limited audience), and I am known to be unreasonable (ie., given to fits of bad temper, retaliation, rage, etc.) --a blessing in and of itself, otherwise I may think I was lobotomized when they put me under, too!)}

Because by the very instance that Scripture is being Re-asserted  (just like a computer Re-Loads its Journal on Start-up, that's why Re.Legion (By definition--Re.Read, over and over again--So, Just How Often Did the Resurrection recur in our own Lifetime?), it serves as a valid check for them to get a clue!

Surah 54 The Moon (Al.Qamar)
 وَلَقَدْ جَاءهُم مِّنَ الْأَنبَاء مَا فِيهِ مُزْدَجَرٌ (54:4) 

54:4  And by measured means (gradually) there came to them Messages by which to Check (Verify)...
Draw-backs ride bit-and-parcel with the advantages technological progress brings--be it kindling the first Fire, developing Nuclear Energy, or baking the first Loaf of Bread.

Innovation is by its very nature a Pandora's Box of Hopeful promise fraught with Hidden dangers, a veritable beaute du diable (devil's beauty)--the motivation is rooted in the Divine, but Evil swaddles the execution (See? I told You she wasn't having a baby! This is a new story, one where everybody else is late except the girl).

The question is something along the lines of...I can't even put it into words, but basically 'why this?'

Proportions based on a kernel

The approach is to process information that is readily available to us here on Earth (3-D spatial dimensions + 1x Time) and try to envision what that Higher Dimensional Object (from 4- 5- or higher dimensional spacetime) truly looks like that is being 'projected' into our accessible field. An exercise akin to trying to draw or describe a hypercube on a sheet of paper--an experience similar to Flatlander Fred's in his encounter with a sphere.

Here, the ship serves as the 3-dimensional projection of the higher dimensional form (ie. 'space ship') and the insight is given by pertinent Quranic passages and the present-day information we have relating the ship's hull to the shield/hull's front view as modeled by an upside down ship's bell and the distribution curve that describes such a shape, including the similitude between cassini curves (in this case the modified bean curve) and certain parts of the ship's frame, to get an idea of what the higher dimensional object looks like having gone through some orthogonal projection, translation, and/or rotation that resulted in what we see as an ocean-going vessel.

The real magic is in knowing that this sort of thing has been done before!~

Take for example Mose's first encounter with technology transfer in Verse 28:31. 

In his unbleached course-linen world, Moses believes himself to be walking around in the desert wearing a 3aba and holding a shepherd's rod, when G-D catches sight of him and demonstrates that's Not SO.

28:31 وَأَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَانٌّ
 وَلَّى مُدْبِرًا وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ
 يَا مُوسَى أَقْبِلْ وَلَا تَخَفْ إِنَّكَ مِنَ الْآمِنِينَ

28:31 (God Said to Moses) "Cast (Throw down) your rod!" and when He (Moses) saw it shaking (vibrating) like it were haywire (jinn, demon), He fled headlong and did not follow (after it). (God Said) "O, Moses! Draw near (accept, accede to this) and do not be afraid, indeed You are among the Secure (Safe)."

The word 'alqa', with its primary meaning to 'cast' or 'throw' an object--in this case his 'rod', establishes that the object is not going to be in the same dimensional spacetime as it was when Moses was holding it.

Why I believe this to be the case has everything to do with the mathematical concepts that relate to 'projection' using keywords like 'throw' which relates to 'w-curve' and earlier arithmetic concepts throughout the Quran which mention 'interwoven paths' and 'knitting/knots/wales/weft/woof/etc.' --all arithmentic concepts previously touched on at A Page In The Life. And the many references to Heaven, Earth, and Hell (different planes/levels of existence) as being at times 'enmeshed' or as clearly stated in Sign 13:4 above, that they are juxtaposed--that is, lying side-by-side, 'stacked one atop the other', or even, 'convergent' without our being aware of this being the case.

Here, b.aththrublaq mathl, (give a metaphore, similitude) just like Jesus did in feeding the Multitudes as mentioned in the Gospels. {I am adding this discourse solely for my friend Wayne's benefit. He absolutely loves Jesus and hopes to see Him one day, but is convinced that this meeting can only happen after he has left the Earthly plane (this Realm space) and does not think that it is Reasonable to have any chance of such an encounter while he is still on Earth. Wayne forgets, that by the very definition, an Eternal Being transcends SpaceTime, so what does it matter to Jesus whether He is at Starbucks in Heaven or on Earth or, yes, even passing through Hell?)

The first instance mentioned in the Gospel of John, of His having to feed a multitude of 5,000 with only 12 loaves of bread (12 baskets of fragments//gaps?) and the second instance, mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew, that of feeding a multitude of 4,000 with only 7 loaves of bread and 2 fish//memory?, (7 baskets of fragments).

{And this addendum is for the benefit of my friends Kamal and/or Simon, since they can think in terms of programming a system based on these allegories. 
The Miracle of 'feeding the multitudes' is analogous to becoming a 'global variable' upon Resurrection, in that it is 'accessible in every scope', unless 'shadowed'.  And 'global variables' (Jesus) have unlimited potential for creating mutual dependencies and interact in 'global environments'. They are used extensively to pass information between sections of code that do not share call/caller relations like concurrent threads and signal handlers-- 'Action at a distance' (spooky or not) versus 'child' processes which inherit their environmental variables and their values from the 'parent' processes....}

In the context of what We are on about here, it would seem the multitudes were in fact a 'convergence' of people from multiple planes of existence (Sign 13:4, coexisting side-by-side), the 'Real' being here on Earth and the 'Virtual' beings in Heaven (some echelon above the code) , and yes, even Hell (some level below the code). And that is why when the Disciples are astonished at Jesus performing such a miracle, He reminds them to give it a bit more 'introspection' or 'insight' (examine the interstitial spaces, the 'background noise').

More clues that bolster this assumption are found across other Scripture and in other Quranic verses where Moses is told to remove his sandals since he is treading on Holy Ground, or Higher Ground (higher dimensional field, or maybe the Zero Point Field).

Verse 28:31 contains further clues to this being the case since the 'rod' or 'staff' that Moses is holding in 3-D has only 6 degrees of motion (3-translations + 3-rotations), and when Moses 'sees' the object in the 'higher dimensional field' it appears to 'vibrate' or 'shake' or 'waggle' (move from side-to-side) like it was a 'snake' or possessed by 'jinn' or 'demon', specifically it appeared to have had gone 'haywire'. This implies that the object, in this instance Moses's rod, has more degrees of freedom to move having been 'thrown', ie. projected--something that can only be possible if higher dimensions opened up to it in which additional modes of 'motion/drive/aim' can be expressed.

The further understanding is that these motions are inherent in the rod in its 'true' state and what Moses is acquainted with as an inanimate shepherd's rod here on Earth is not "the rod, the whole rod, and nothing but the rod" to someone in 'realmspace'. (Please tell the kids to stop relating everything that I say about the rod to 'anatomical parts'--it's not funny, and more than a little socially awkward, especially when they express as much around my kid during a visit to our friendly neighborhood ice cream parlor recently).

Surah 36 Ya-Siin
36:36 سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْأَزْوَاجَ كُلَّهَا مِمَّا تُنبِتُ الْأَرْضُ
وَمِنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ وَمِمَّا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
36:36 Extol Him who Creates Pairs (Duals, Twosomes, Complements) of Everything that the Earth produces (grows) and of/from/among themselves (their souls/beings-- nafs) and of what they do not know (have no knowlege of as yet).

That the sea-going vessel, here we are talking about a ship, is still thought to be a 'space ship' in realm space is inferred from passages that relate to 'duals.' Verse 36:36 gives the insight to this in that God Creates something and its complement (dual, pair, mate) and of each (thing and its mate) He Creates its complement or dual/'some type of twin'. This is the case whether it is a plant, a creature, or something we have yet to understand. So, there is no reason to think that a ship or boat in 3-D space is a banana in hyperspace, the expectation is the higher level entity that is projected as a 3-D ship is still some sort of homologous higher-dimensional space 'ship'.

I'll draw You a picture:

Quran Verse 36:36
Pertaining to Created Pairs, Opposites, Homologues, Isomorphs, Duals
For Examples, The Male and The Female

20:20 فَأَلْقَاهَا فَإِذَا هِيَ حَيَّةٌ تَسْعَى
20:20 So He (Moses) threw down (cast his rod) and it appeared to be a snake in pursuit (she looked to be seeking the sorcerers' snakes)-- (alternatively, "she was a live wire (capacitive--and a 'capacitive live wire' has no resistance, only reactance? Who knows? Let's ask Who!)")

In terms of the Power in such a 'haywire', there is an Apparent Sin:

The Implications of Reactive and Resistive Power in AC Circuits

The Power Factor is derived by averaging over 1 cycle from t=0 to t=2p/w, and conveniently since the x and y are carefully selected st z=arctan (y/x) lies in one of the quadrants of the Real and Imaginary (Virtual) coordinate system, x (the Domain) is not allowed to be 0 (x¹0), making the Imaginary (virtual, i.e, phase)  Sin term 'drop out' when averaging over the same cycle (0 £ t £ 2p/w ).

The Reasoning goes something like this:
Figure 1

When in Reality, 'Azimuth' is omitted to make the math easier. What'r We?--Ants?!

Figure 2

But first, a story about the trouble with 'average'. This one Bill told me.

About Average
Three hunters go out for big game season and in just about no time at all a majestic hart appears in the woods. 
It stands stock still, unfazed by the hunters' intrusion; he is very large with a developed set of mature branching antlers, all velvety points and beams--in other words, it was hard to miss. 
On spotting it, the first hunter takes careful aim and shoots, and misses 3 feet to the left. 
The hart stands its ground, unimpressed by the first attempt to take it down. 
The second hunter seizes his opportunity to try his luck and aims and shoots, and he misses 3 feet to the right. 
On seeing this, the third hunter, who happens to be Elmer Fudd, starts jumping up and down with joy, and says, "We got him! We got him!!"

It's 3:53-3:57 for the electrical/systems engineers out there, and I will plod along at my snails pace, 'cause I still stranded here without a ride, a home, a family, ever dwindling resources, or a justification for breathing... I take it back , I still have the headache.

For  a quadratic equation of the form x2 + bx + c = y, a solution for x where b2 £ 4ac, yields roots that are complex numbers.

For z = x + iy, the magnitude  |z| =√(x^2+y^2 ); a generalization of the absolute value for Real numbers.

Expressed in polar coordinates, z =  iq
If z is purely Real, then is either 0 or π,
If z is purely Imaginary, then is either π/2 or 3π/2 ; and over 1 cycle,  (£  w £ 2p )  sufficiently describes any number, shown in Figure 1 above.

From Euler/Taylor Expansion we get;
cos(q)= (  iq  +   -iq)/2 and 
sin(q) =( ℯ iq  -  ℯ -iq) /2i
In the double-slit experiment, the path length difference determines whether an electron expresses as a particle or wave (Real or Virtual, I suppose this depends on whether or not True (=1) Loves (0 Tennis score or 10S) Meet (see Posets)?), and basically depends on the spatial resolution of the measurement; if the integral is 1/2 or full multiple of the wavelength l.

The implication being that for particle-wave duality any Real wave function corresponds to motion with No Net Momentum, and that any Virtual particle Having Net Momentum must have a Complex wave function.

By extension, this does not exclude the particle-wave (let's say for our purposes here the electric current, I) from having other characteristics expressed in a coordinate system that allows a more comprehensive description.

For instance, the heat signature of a wire with current passing through it or having passed through it, may be included and described along what we are calling the 'Off The Page' and 'Off The Page In The Other Direction' Axis, in Figure 2 above.

And assuming we are looking at the heat signature in terms of the Infrared (IR) emission, in practice it would have a rotational structure wherein we can measure the molecular bond length (lattice) as well as the Force content  (Voltage, V=IR being the electrical system analog to Force, F, in  a mechanical system, or velocity v, in the topology-preserving analogy), or holistically, 'color.' (Intesity of the Source vs. Amplitude of the Wave vs. Lattice Spacing (See Gap  or Color)).

Here it is in the Chemical system analog for Vibrational and Rotational Transitions of Diatomic Molecules (HCl in this case) Wavenumber vs. Absorbance FTIR spectra (which can be used to calculate bond length, or for our purposes here 'the lattice metric') .

Wavenumber vs Absorbance, Note Branching

Basically, a lot can happen 'Off the Page' and all we get to see are the 'traces' of what's left behind.

Here, with a little assistance from Clipart, I'll draw You another picture.

What Happens 'Off The Page' And The Impression That's Left Behind

According to what landed 'On the Page' in the above creative, on average it looks like all that time up in the air  didn't leave much of an impression.
